21 Fall-Themed Wedding Decorations You'll Love
Wheat Stalk Bouquets
Instead of going traditional, utilize the feelings of fall and grab some wheat. It is harvest season, after all, so infuse that rustic charm this time of the year holds so beautifully. Have your bridesmaids hold onto something a bit more textural – then turn around and use these to decorate the cake table!
Pumpkins are a must for your fall wedding. You don’t have to be kitschy, of course, but having a few sprinkled around the event pays a nice nod to the season. Of course, painting them gold or silver could push up the style a bit more than leaving them orange.
Unique Outdoor Seating
Fall weddings are perfect for celebrating outside, but you may need a bit of extra cozy appeal, especially if you’re exchanging vows while the sun is setting. Some unique seating is a must and will add a warm, welcoming vibe to the scene.
Mason Jar Vases
Mason jars are perfect to use as vases – and they’re inexpensive too for our DIY lovers. Use them to hold some fresh petals at the table. It’ll add just enough style to each top with a sweet, throwback spirit.
Autumnal Fruit & Veg
Use these as bits and pieces to sprinkle around the vent. Great for centerpieces or to highlight the ceremony in different ways, use apples, cranberries, pears, and more to add color and texture to the day.
How much more beautiful could your wedding ceremony get than with a fall-inspired, leaf-filled arch to set the entire event off. It’s natural, it’s organic, and the photos will be magical. And yes, it’s DIYable as well.
Another way to route the romance is to hang some twinkle lights. Perfect for all seasons, especially those nights that have a bit more of a fairy-tale setting, thinking about setting off the big night with a few of these strands.
Bouts of Cotton
Include some in the bouquets or puffs in the centerpieces, cotton goes well with wheat too! This texture signifies fall and all of its comfort so well. If you’re looking for a unique texture for your inspired wedding, this is one to take a second look at.
Chalkboards have a homey appeal, just like fall. Use these to showcase the menu, point the right way, or tell a fun, personalized story throughout the entire event. If you’re looking to build a more welcoming big day, use a few of these.
There’s something extra special about a welcome for your guests to enjoy. And for fall events, some hot apple cider could do the trick. Add some comfy seating and other options for an enjoyable way to the main celebration.
Lace is another good texture to throw into the decorations for your fall weddings. In fact, it looks especially nice on the tabletops, especially with some fresh petals thrown around. If you’re looking for vintage or rustic visions throughout the season, choose to go with this fabric.
Whether it’s on the tables, on the groomsmen, or even on the seats at the ceremony, plaid is quintessentially autumn, so utilize it. It’s especially nice when there’s a chill in the air. Nix tradition and think outside-the-box.
Fall evokes a feeling of organics and nature. Use that bit as inspiration! Whether it’s the tables or some bare chandeliers, branches can be turned into a lot of great pieces to dawn the nooks and crannies of the day.
You can use these all year round but we find them especially beautiful to top off your autumnal events. Extra-large ones work great as photo-ops and the smaller ones can mark the doors, arches, mantles, and windows quite nicely as well.
Leafs Along the Aisle
Cover the aisle with your favorite symbol of fall. Crunching and colorful leaves can fill up the aisle so beautifully. Instead of rose petals, utilize the season! Real or faux can work, just take your pick and use the easiest option.
Keep the cake simple and then set it off with some sunflowers; the flower of the season. The color is striking and the petals are bold. The tables could use the happy boost!
Fall is full of romance. Why not emphasize that fact by adding a variety of candle votives to amp up that romantic charm? All throughout the reception and ceremony, you can sprinkle them.
A perfect DIY project, for you or the most creative person you know, these pumpkin vases are beautiful additions to the reception tables. Stuff them with fresh florals or varying textures. You can even paint them white – or only use white gourds – for a chicer finish.
Think outside-the-box in terms of lighting as well. Edgy vibes and cozy appeals work well within this month, so think about adding some of these kinds of fixtures to the event. Over the reception tables or even inside of the ceremony.
Pumpkin Table Garland
Gather up your gourds and turn them into a garland for your tables. This works especially well for those that chose to do with family style seating. And it’s a beautiful way to utilize the season’s most well-known bit.
Fall Leaf Escort Cards
Do something a bit more unique with your escort or place cards. Use leaves in their place! Color them all the same – a gilded autumn tone – or use their original shades depending on your theme. You can DIY these in an afternoon!
